In the summer 1873 the clock tower of the Royal Castle of Warsaw was covered in scaffold with a platform over the dome. On 26 August 1873 Konrad Brandel, a famous Polish photographer and inventor, took a unique series of 10 pictures creating a 360° panorama of Warsaw.
The Exhibition was opened for visitors in August 2020 as a part of official commemorations of the 76th anniversary of the Warsaw Rising. It presents hundreds of artefacts, media or works of art referring to or bearing the symbol of the Fighting Poland.
The Warsaw Rising Museum will be open again for visitors from 5 May 2021. For your convenience we have prepared an English audio track which you may follow on your smartphone. Special cards with a QR code are waiting for you upon the arrival. If you are interested in discovering the story of the Warsaw Rising with our guides, in February it is free of charge (admission ticket only).
